In his new book Alternative Ulsters BBC NI broadcaster Mark Carruthers interviews a range of public figures and asks them to reflect on their identity.

GAA pundit and Derry footballing legend Joe Brolly is quoted as saying:

“I’m happy to think of myself as Northern Irish”

While journalist and campaigner Eamonn McCann says he takes a slightly perverse pleasure in signing a hotel register

‘Northern Irish’.

Hmm.
